Everyone is welcome to join us in creating beauty

in our town

Our aims are simple:

  • To encourage a sense of community and pride in Crewkerne

  • To enhance its attraction and environmental friendliness

  • To help bring more visitors to the town

Community

We actively encourage community involvement. 

You can join a group, take part individually, as a business, or even start your own It's Your Neighbourhood group.  Here are some of the things our regular band of volunteers get up to:

  • Caring for the town's flower beds and planters

  • Organising colourful hanging baskets for the main areas

  • Turning our hand to making Christmas decorations for the town's display

  • Joining in community events such as the Farmers' Market, activities in Henhayes and the Church Christmas Tree Festival.

  • Putting up displays of our work at the Local Information Centre and Museum

  • Planting and selling hyacinth bulbs for fundraising

  • Arranging an annual garden competition for residents, with a variety of classes

  • Running themed window display competitions for businesses.

Kids! We need you!

Let us know what you would like to do with us.  Gardening, horticulture and environmental care are hot topics.  Not only are they beneficial to all aspects of health - first hand experience could set you on the path to a great career.

Environmental Friendliness

We are very aware of our environmental impact and are completely peat-free.  With an increasing amount of perennial planting, we are providing flowers for bees and other insects throughout the year.  We have several recycled tanks, troughs and wooden planters with reservoirs to reduce water wastage - as well as time spent watering!

Allowing nature to flourish has always been close to our hearts and for some time we have monitored and managed certain areas in the St Bartholomew's churchyard.  A joint initiative between the Diocese of Bath and Wells and the Somerset Wildlife Trust called Wilder Churches spurred us on to implementing wild areas in the church surroundings.
